    Congrats on your great find!!! The Centennial badge means that it was made in 1951. You can go www.singerco.com and find out the modle and year it was made with the serial number.

    3.00 for the whole thing??? That is amazing! Pictures or not, I have paid 3.00 for office supplies that consisted of dried ink in pens and pencil stubs. Good job!

    $3.00? That has to be one of the best finds ever!
    My big sale 'find' has nothing to do with quilting - got a Vita Mix blender (say $370.00 retail) for $15.00 at a yard sale once - still using it. But your gem is even better! Congrats. I'd have made the purchase just for the cabinet.
